Sinistro Announces Mr. Desflorado for PCA – Cigar News

Sinistro has announced Mr. Desflorado, which will be the main showcase at their booth at the PCA trade show this week. The cigar will begin shipping immediately after PCA.

This will be a regular production release as part of the ‘Mr. Series’ – (Mr. Black, Mr. Red, Mr. White, Mr. White Gold Edition, and new Mr. Desflorado)

The cigar was blended by James Agopian of Sinistro Cigars, and is rolled at the El Artista factory in the Dominican Republic. The blend uses a Desflorado Connecticut wrapper, African Cameroon binder, and Dominican, Colombian, and Nicaraguan fillers. The cigar is described as medium-bodied and comes in two vitolas: Robusto 5×52 MSRP $10/cigar, box of 20 $200 MSRP, and Toro 6×54 MSRP $11/cigar, box of 20 $220 MSRP.

The Connecticut Desflorado wrapper involves a precise rare procedure implemented during the cultivation phase of the tobacco plant. In this distinctive process, the uppermost pink flowers of the plant are deliberately removed prior to seed formation. The outcome of this technique is twofold: it deepens the shade of the leaf’s hue and imbues it with a significantly sweeter taste profile. Complementing this wrapper is the infusion of an African Cameroon wrapper along with carefully selected fillers sourced from Nicaragua, Dominican Republic, and Colombia. This harmonious combination of elements results in a symphony of flavors that tantalizes the palate.
